Primary Outcome Measures:
  • HBsAg Clearance [ Time Frame: 120 weeks ]
    Percentage of Participants with HBsAg <0.05 IU/mL.

  • HBsAg Seroconversion [ Time Frame: 120 weeks ]
    Percentage of Participants with HBsAg <0.05 IU/mL and anti-HBsAg positive.


Estimated Enrollment: 200
Study Start Date: June 2016
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Experimental
CHB patients with low level HBsAg.Hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)-negative CHB patients who had received NAs for more than 12 months, with HBsAg <1000 IU/mL and Hepatitis B virus DNA <100 IU/mL, are to receive peginterferon alfa-2a 180 micrograms/week or peginterferon alfa-2b 80 micrograms/week. The longest course of treatment is 96 weeks. After treatment, patients will be followed up for 24 weeks. During the 96 weeks course of treatment, HBsAg level will be monitored. When HBsAg level is less than 0.05 IU/mL, peginterferon treatment will be stopped and patients will receive 24 weeks follow up.
Drug: peginterferon alfa
peginterferon alfa-2b or peginterferon alfa-2a
Control
Patients do not need to change their NAs treatment.
Drug: Nucleoside analogues
Nucleoside analogues
Other Name: NAs

Detailed Description:
In order to optimize HBsAg clearance in CHB patients with low level HBsAg, the investigators enrolled patients who had received, and responded to, NAs for more than 12 months(see the inclusion criteria), and patients are switched to receive peginterferon alfa-2a 180 micrograms/week or peginterferon alfa-2b 80 micrograms/week. The longest course of treatment is 96 weeks. After treatment, patients will be followed up for 24 weeks. During the 96 weeks course of treatment, HBsAg level will be monitored. When HBsAg level is less than 0.05 IU/mL, peginterferon treatment will be stopped and patients will receive 24 weeks follow up.
